The Catfish's Meow

Interestingly enough, I guess since I'm the leftover makeover, out of 4 dishes that I served at a party, the one that I turned into a Leftover Makeover was the biggest hit of all. They had some leftover catfish, and I know that when catfish is made right, it can be very good. Try this recipe, and you will have your guests meowing for more!

4-5 Fillet Catfish (any kind of fish if fine)
Half Carrots (juliened)
2 stalk Green onions (chopped)
1 teaspoon Hot Sauce or Sri Racha
2 tablespoon Fish sauce
2 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
1/4 cup Water
1 teaspoon smashed garlic
1/2 Onions (sliced)
Salt and Pepper
1. Heat the non-stick saucepan with 3-4 tablespoon Vegetable oil, medium to high heat.
2. Sprinkle salt and pepper on to the fish and then seared half cook (want to get the little crust)
3. Take out the half done fish.
4. Add sliced onions and carrots, caramelised it, then add garlic.
5. Add fish sauce, rice vinegar, water, hot sauce and sugar, reduce this sauce. (taste it first)
(Tips: if too sour, add sugar and if too sweet, add vinegar and water. If too salty, add sugar, vinegar and water)
6. Add back the fish and green onions, to mix with the reduced sauce.
7. Eat with steam rice.
